European Travel Expert

I am committed to sharing my passion for world travel, international cuisine, and luxury adventures with like-minded travel enthusiasts. I bring a wealth of experience from living overseas as a military spouse and as being a well-trained travel advisor accredited in both land-based and cruise experiences with major family institutions such as Adventures by Disney, to luxury river cruise experiences like Ama Waterways and Scenic River Cruises, as well as luxury all-inclusive resorts like Sandals and Beaches. As a military spouse, I've lived abroad in both Europe and the Middle East, which allow me to give the unique perspective of well-known vacation landmarks as well as lesser known, exceptional experiences. As a bonus for family travel, I've done most of these destinations with our little one-it can be challenging, but it can be done!

River Cruise Travel Specialist
Have you heard the saying that cruises take you TO countries, but that RIVER cruises take you THROUGH countries? I just love that and it is so true! Why take a river cruise? The ships are much smaller so there are fewer passengers where you get to make friends, they go to the best destinations wi...

Culinary, Food & Wine Travel Specialist
One of my favorite things about traveling is tasting my way through a country. So much of the culinary profile of a place is influenced by its culture and its past. I love to try all of the special dishes of a new location, taste their local wine (or beer, brandy, whiskey, or whatever their speci...

Christmas Market Travel Specialist
Christmas Market Travel Specialist
Nothing makes Christmas feel more “Christmassy” than Europe’s Christmas Markets. Every city has its own feel and each highlights their own culture and cuisine, but they all have that feeling of Gemütlichkeit. It’s that German word used to describe a feeling of warmth, friendliness, and good cheer...

My Travel Stories

Bulgaria-SE Europe's Hidden Gem
I took a trip with a local and a friend with our kids through some of the most beautiful regions of Bulgaria. We began our journey in Blagoevgrad to stay with our host for just one night before heading to the hot springs area of Banya. Our beautiful resort had an indoor/outdoor pool where you can swim between them, and the water is ALWAYS a nice...

The Treasury at Petra, Jordan
Beautiful Petra and Rustic Wadi Rum in Jordan
We had an amazing time "glamping" in Wadi Rum in Jordan. This was no mere camping experience-our luxury tent came complete with a full, clean restroom with a shower, mirror, dressers, etc. and the spacious bedroom had really comfortable beds. Our campsite was complete with an on-site and delicious restaurant serving local cuisine, but it was the...

    Retirement celebration in the Baltic
    Reviewed By Chris D - Bel Air, Maryland | Traveled to Baltic Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
    Cynthia has been wonderful! She provided honest and helpful feedback, professional assistance from experience, and planned everything out to the tee. She is very reliable, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. We started out with a travel agent and wound up with a lifetime friend.
    I would recommend this agent to my family and friends.

    Great 10- Day Egypt Tour
    Reviewed By Tov Tim - Tel Aviv, Israel | Traveled to Egypt ~ Africa
    My wife and I wanted to visit Egypt our whole life, so when we decided to work with Cynthia, our wish list of things we wanted to see and do was about as long as the Nile. Cynthia's experience with Egyptian tour operators and personal knowledge from previous travels was very useful. Given our travel window and requests, I appreciate the honest feedback about what we could and couldn't see, which helped set expectations.
    We had a great experience working with Cynthia. She was organized, responsive, and very professional.
    I would recommend this agent to my family and friends.

    As weather but still had good time
    Reviewed By Wanderer - Bandera, Texas | Traveled to Nassau ~ Bahamas ~ Caribbean
    We did a back to back cruise with Carnival Cruise line. Carnival is our choice because we have cruises often with them and are at the diamond level. Cynthia was excellent to work with and helping us to choose the best location and balcony for us. Booking a back to back is sometimes difficult to get same cabin for both legs but she was able to take care of that with a great location. Our experience with Passports to Memories was excellent! We had many cruises booked and canceled during COVID so it had been a nightmare trying to get things sorted out. Cynthia took care of a back to back last October for us which was insane requiring lots of hours of work. Even though she didn’t book some of the original bookings, she was dillegent in taking care of it. She definitely earned our business on the last back to back and for the future. We are confident now and looking forward to working with her for many years to come. Always nice to find someone interested in customer service.
    I would recommend this agent to my family and friends.

    Incrediable experience, exceeded my expectations!
    Reviewed By Solum Vagus - Arlington, VA | Traveled to Georgia ~ Russia & Northwest Asia
    Cynthia helped my family create one of the most memorable vacations of our lives. We knew we wanted to visit the Republic of Georgia, but little else other than a budget. Cynthia created an exclusive itinerary engaging the whole family, ranging from active hiking in the north Caucasus mountains, cultural tours of churches and iconography, and leisure at a wine-themed resort. She even arranged a private wine tasting at my wife's favorite vineyard. Cynthia exceeded my exceptions on this trip.
    I would recommend this agent to my family and friends.
